Title: Balancing Act
Catalogue n°: Bad Panda 009
Release date: 01.02.2010

The Underscore Orkestra is a Portland (Oregon) based band, playing a blend of Balkan, Klezmer, Gypsy Jazz and Swing, with a repertoire consisting of both original and traditional material from fast bulgars and melodious waltzes to odd meters and swinging rhythms. Their instrumentation includes violin, accordion, guitar, banjo, clarinet, horns, flute, harmonica, bass, vocals and percussion. Each of the members comes from various backgrounds and musical disciplines from as far away as Russia and as close as our own North West. The Underscore Orkestra has been performing for the past 3 + years, touring all around the western U.S., Mexico and Guatemala and has been seen from intimate coffee shop setting all the way to huge outdoor festivals.
